NESN Bruins analyst Andy Brickley made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the B's struggles vs. the Flyers in the Eastern Conference semifinal series. Brickley said the Bruins gave a much better effort Wednesday night in a 2-1 loss that evened the series at 3. "They played pretty hard. I thought they played fairly smart. I think fact that they can't score goals right now is the reason the Flyers were able to come back [in the series]," Brickley said, adding that another key has been Simon Gagne's return to Philadelphia's lineup.

PHILADELPHIA -- Only minutes after losing their third straight in the series to the Flyers, 2-1, many Bruins attempted to put on a brave face as they now face a do-or-die Game 7 at TD Garden on Friday night. 

 

“Like my buddy once said, ‘Pressure is five kids, no job.’ This is just fun," Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said. "Game 7. Enjoy it. Just drink it in, as they say.”

 

Michael J. Fox, eat your heart out.

PHILADELPHIA -- Mike Richards scored in the first period and Daniel Briere followed with a second-period tally, while Michael Leighton stopped 31 shots as the Flyers beat the Bruins 2-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night at the Wachovia Center to force a Game 7 at TD Garden in Boston Friday night. 

 

PHILADELPHIA -- The Bruins are hoping to avoid the pressure of a do-or-die Game 7 back in Boston on Friday night by beating the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at the Wachovia Center. The Bruins now lead the series, 3-2, after dropping the last two games while the Flyers have gained momentum with star Simon Gagne back in the lineup. 

 

Recent historical perspective tells us the Bruins can bounce back from their absolute clunker in Game 5 against the Flyers on Monday.

The playoffs are all about buzzwords and catch phrases: pressure, backs against the wall, desperation. They fall to the ground like candy from a piñata. They are pertinent, sure, but when things are going bad, they are the crutch a player holds onto in trying to explain what happened to this once-golden opportunity.

Think twice before making plans for Friday night. The Bruins just might be taking the ice that evening.

Brian Boucher and Michael Leighton combined on a shutout and Simon Gagne scored twice as the Philadelphia Flyers blanked the Bruins, 4-0, in Game 5 Monday night before a shell-shocked sellout crowd at TD Garden. The Bruins have lost the last two games but still lead the series, 3-2, with Game 6 set for Wednesday in Philadelphia. 

 

The Bruins failed to test Leighton, who was making his first appearance in a game since March 16. Boucher was forced to leave with an apparent right knee injury in the opening five minutes of the second period.
